I was trying to find out the mechanism of "salting out" (i.e. What happens 
when adding salt to precipitate protein from aqueous solution). But I did not 
find the answer in the archives. The most the close answers are about protein 
denaturation. Can you give me a brief answer for "salting out" or 
maybe "salting in" mechanism?

Thank you
